On December 22, Square Enix will release a new Final Fantasy XV update on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One that adds a New Game+ feature, “allowing those who have completed the game’s main line story to start a new game with all previous gameplay data intact.” Additionally, next week’s update will include a new photo frame feature where you can choose from a variety of themed photo frames that can be applied to and accessorized with Prompto’s photographs.

There’s also going to be two versions of the Holiday Pack DLC available on December 22 – one free and one paid. Here’s what to expect from each:

Holiday Pack (Free)

  • Warrior’s Fanfare – A scroll of sheet music containing a song of jubilation that provides additional AP for earning an A+ in Offense outside of training.
  • Nixperience Band – A device that stops experience points from being tallied, preventing the party from leveling up for an added challenge.
  • Carnival Passport – An adorably adorned ticket that whisks the bearer away to a fun-filled carnival for a limited time.
  • Choco-Mog Tee (available late January) – An exclusive T-shirt featuring everyone’s favorite fluffy and feathery friends. Colorful, comfy and appropriate for any carnival-goer.

Holiday Pack + (Paid)

  • Ring of Resistance – A protective piece of jewelry that renders the entire party to be resistant to magical friendly fire.
  • Tech Turbocharger – A device for Noctis that accelerates the tech bar replenishment rate, but freezes the Armiger bar.
  • Armiger Accelerator – A device for Noctis that accelerates the Armiger bar replenishment rate, but freezes the tech bar.
  • Blitzer’s Fanfare – A scroll of sheet music containing a song of jubilation that provides additional AP for earning an A+ in Time outside of training.
  • Tactician’s Fanfare – A scroll of sheet music containing a song of jubilation that provides additional AP for earning an A+ in Finesse outside of training.
  • Key of Prosperity – A lucky charm that increases the rate at which fallen foes leave behind items of value.
  • Stamina Badge – A device that enables Noctis to sprint and hang without expending stamina.
  • Carnival Passport – An adorably adorned ticket that whisks the bearer away to a fun-filled carnival for a limited time.
  • Festive Ensemble (available late January) – A fancy and fun outfit perfectly suited for enjoying the festivities. The darling design puts all who see it in high spirits.
  • Holiday Pack + Exclusive Photo Frames (available late January) – Additional themes the player can add to Prompto’s photos when sharing over social media.

The Holiday Pack + DLC will be available for free to all Season Pass owners. Square Enix hasn’t said how much it will cost on its own. “Players who have the Season Pass or the Digital Premium Edition should also download the Holiday Pack (Free Version) as the items will not be automatically downloaded,” they add.

In the Season Pass section of the Final Fantasy XV website, Square Enix says it includes access to these seven DLC packs: Holiday Pack +, Booster Pack +, Episode Gladiolus, Episode Ignis, Episode Prompto, Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades, and Gourmand Set.

Just like the Holiday Pack, the upcoming Booster Pack will be available in both free and paid versions, with each version offering up different items.
